The First Year

-

I can't say "I never had a lady friend

__for this long before"

But I can say "she's never been

__my best friend before"

Thee amount of hours spent on the 'phone

Has passed the 12 months

__like rain from the sky

I've enjoyed you so much

That it doesn't even fee that long

It doesn't matter, the time zone

__difference

It only matters that we do

__communicate

And we've been doing that

__still

My love for you

__has seen me thru ev'rything

Gotten me over my ex

Gotten me to forget about

__my so-called friend

____who won't be my friend anymore

Gotten me to stop obsessing on

__women I know I can't have

Enough to wait for the right one

Even though I may still write about them

__until she comes

You have seen me happy

You have seen me sad

But no matter what

We're still best friends

You're all that I have
